PINEAPPLES & PALMS: ROBB & LULU'S DAZZLING SWIMWEAR DEBUT

Australian husband and wife team, Robb & Lulu have released their much awaited 2017 collection Pineapples and Palms. The duo were inspired by their love of the tropics to create the new figure-flattering line that embodies their signature look of fun and flirty resort wear.

The suits showcase Carvico’s Vita fabric from Italy to create pieces that are sturdy yet flexible enough to move with your body. Laden with eye-catching patterns, the color scheme of the line brings to mind relaxed island vibes, featuring muted pastels, teal, and magenta. While the lighthearted appeal and love of patterns is consistent with past Robb & Lulu lines, the 2017 collection branched off from the uber-feminine blush and purple palette of last season’s collection.

“This collection is more well developed," says co-creator Lulu Zagame. "With experience, I have learned what women want and this collection caters to those needs more so. We have also introduced greens and blues through the prints and the solid separates, stemming away from blushes and purples of last season. What remains the same, and is our hand illustrated print artwork, attention to detail and print combos. Our best selling silhouette will also be remaining.” RobbandLulu.com — MERIAL WILES
